Usana Mindset team

Over the years, I have seen a need for there to be easier access to great coaches, those that are committed to helping others, have solid, measurable experience, as well as undertaken training that’s accredited through various professional associations, such as Association of Coaching or International Coaching Federation.

It is a huge privilege to be able to work with a client so closely, but with this partnership comes huge responsibility, hence why my team are highly trained, are committed to keeping accreditation, and engage in supervisory sessions as well as continual professional development

Usana Mindset’s team members offer their own unique coaching style, yet you can be assured of excellent support, standards and engagement.

Initial discovery calls are always with myself, and we will explore the right coach for you at this time.

Hugh – associate coach

Hugh is an accredited transformational life coach and Neuro-linguistic programme (NLP) practitioner, and works with clients to help break down the barriers that are getting in way of the life they desire.

“I have been working as an Accredited Life coach for a couple of years, and it has become my greatest passion to work with people who want to live life to their full potential.

My main objective as a coach is to help people build an unshakeable mindset and find their inner power to help them realise their potential and create the life they desire, while shining a light on what’s been holding them back all along.

Sometimes it’s the fear of what might happen that is stopping us from taking action to move you forward in the direction we want our lives to go in. That’s how it was for me for most of my adult life, until I became aware of my thought patterns and associated behaviours that were being driven by limiting beliefs which were ultimately controlling all my decisions at an unconscious level.

My new empowering belief is that there is always a solution, but sometimes we just can’t see it.

It’s become my greatest passion to help others develop the awareness to see beyond their perceived problems and limitations and find their own answers.”

Away from work, Hugh enjoys running around after his young daughter and hanging out with his family. When gets some quiet time, he likes to head to the beach for surfboarding, go for a walk or ride through the countryside on his motorbike.
